Re-municipalisation. Translation? The reclaiming of water from private enterprise

I received news of the video and information below recently, and see there is also a new essay on water privatization available from the Global Water Forum.

Remunicipalization: Putting Water Back into Public Hands
The video is a 5 minutes motion design documentary about cities reversing water privatization to regain public control. It explores water ‘remunicipalisation’ in Buenos Aires and Paris, looking at the challenges and benefits of reclaiming public water. It calls on citizens worldwide to mobilize around this option. The video was produced by Transnational Institute (TNI), Municipal Services Projects (MSP) and Corporate Europe Observatory(CEO). Credits: Dent De Cuir
